VoxImplant helps app developers build better real-time communication apps faster and for our team, real-time communication includes a number of different things. We've started with audio, then we've added video calls and now it's time to let our developers use instant messaging and presence – two very important features of UC stack. We also ready to take care of rosters/contact lists – VoxImplant developers can now integrate full-featured messenger functionality into their apps in minutes. When we've been working on this update we tried to imagine different services our developers could build using these capabilities (for b2b and b2c), so in addition to their personal roster (every app user can create it by himself like in Skype and other messengers) we created application roster – it includes all app users and can be rather useful for b2b apps (something similar to Slack or Lync). In 2017, we updated our messenger API, so please check this link for details and how-to's!

Any contact center manager considering a new cloud communications solution needs to do their “due diligence” before choosing a provider, including those in small to medium enterprises. The stakes are high for SMEs because your needs are unique and there are significant differences in the available providers. Your decision not only affects your organization’s budget, but also its business processes, customer experiences, and agent work environment.
A couple weeks ago, Amazon Web Services (AWS) experienced an outage in its US-EAST-1 region. As so many services rely on AWS, this outage had a broader impact, causing outages and various issues with Amazon’s own Ring services, online retailers, and even the New York City MTA. In addition, a couple major Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) providers also reported issues (Voximplant was not impacted), potentially impacting the communications of many of their customers. With this in mind, now is a good time to look at how CPaaS offers leverage public cloud infrastructure and review the factors involved in providing reliable, high quality communications services. In this post we will review the public cloud infrastructure used by several major CPaaS vendors and discuss the implications of their choices.
In our fast-paced, digitally focused world, customers want personalized service at lightning speed. A Hubspot survey of 1,000 customers found that 90% of people expect a response from a live customer service agent in ten minutes or less. Because expectations are so high, the pressure is on for customer service agents to consistently provide quick, high-quality customer experiences. Offering an elevated level of service with such a fast turnaround is next to impossible with manual support alone. And even if you have some digital tools in your tech stack, traditional contact center technology can fall short when it comes to efficiency. That’s why choosing no-fuss technology that automates your contact center’s routine operations is essential for making tasks more manageable for your agents.
